Where like-minded enthusiasts get together on a regular basis, just to socialise and talk about everything and anything to do with classic bikes and cars.

Now in its ninth year, the Classic Car and Bike Meet is usually held on the first Wednesday of every month (May to September) and in 2019 on Sunday 19 May. But due to the varying weather conditions, we always recommend you check our Latest Events page before coming along. We do our best not to cancel or postpone, but the ground has to be suitable. You'll find us at the Earls Barton Showground (NN6 0EP), just off junction 10 of the A45 between Northampton and Wellingborough. It's a great way of whiling away a few hours; we look forward to seeing you there.

Classic Cars

You'll find many classic, vintage and supercars. Modern classics and old timers. Bring your own or simply park up and admire everyone else's. It's a chance to talk about all things motor related, eat, drink, browse and shop.

CLassic Bikes

Modern classic bikes mixed with some real historic models. You'll find them all at the Classic Car and Bike Meet. Grab a coffee and chat to fellow lovers of two-wheels, old and new; it's a real bikers' social. Come along to the next one.

Traders & Autojumble

This year we welcome back some of our regular stall holders and introduce a few new faces. From vehicles to parts and accessories to a wide range of food and drink outlets, come and talk shop at the Earls Barton Showground.

We meet every month from April to September.


So why not put this year’s dates in your diary? The events run from April through to September - and to make it easy for you to remember, they are usually on the first Wednesday of the month from 4.30pm till 9pm, light permitting. Plus this year, we have added Sunday 19 May. Entry is just £3 per vehicle. What's not to like?


Don't just take our word for it.


So many people love this event that they often tell us. Naturally the best way to find out what it's like is to come along yourself. Bring your partner or friends, hope the sun stays out and have a browse. Our aim is to ensure the events is accessible and enjoyable for all.

An eclectic mix of cars and bikes, there is a car or bike for everyone. The exhibitors are always happy to talk about their machines. Good food and drink available too.

Great meet. You never know what’s going to show up. Such a great mix of retros, classics, rods, VWs and yanks. Petrol heads of the world unite? Well at least Northamptonshire.

Always a fantastic random collection of cars and bikes of all ages. Totally relaxed atmosphere and when the sun shines, I can’t think of a better place to chill out.
